7 Reasons We Love Autumn
23 September 2016 | Post By: Kelly Hunter | Lifestyle
With the autumnal equinox having been and gone, and that morning chill lingering for a little longer each day, it is safe to safe that autumn is definitely now upon us. But instead of trying to hold on to summer, and complaining about the drop in temperature, we're embracing all things that we lover about autumn here at WARINGS.
Although it is perfectly normal to use candles throughout the summer, it just doesn't quite have the same effect that as it does in autumn or winter. As autumn approaches, swap out fresh linen and mown grass scented candles for something a little richer, and gently spiced, to create a truly warming scent throughout the home.
Throws and blankets are definitely one of our favourite things about autumn, especially when they're soft, cosy and occasionally fluffy! Perfect for creating a cosy autumn evening in filled with films and snacks!
With the nights drawing in, combine that with our first two favourite things about autumn (candles and blankets), then you've pretty much got an ideal comfy and cosy evening, which leaves only one thing missing - lighting! Creating the perfect light setting for the dark evenings is the final piece to capturing the perfect evening in, so investing in a lamp that is going to stand out and light up a room is so important! Why not add fairy lights for an extra special ambiance.
4. Comfort Food & Hot Drinks
Hot drinks and comfort foods are probably our favourite thing about autumn. Forget quinoa and salad, it's finally that time where we can drink hot chocolates, treat ourselves to a piece of cake, or a chocolate rocky road! And as for food, cafe WARING serves a delicious range of soups throughout the autumn and winter - not to be missed!
Halloween of course speaks for itself - pumpkins and pumpkin carving!
To keep up with the theme of keeping warm and cosy, fires and wood burners are definitely one of our favourite perks of the autumn. So upload your throws and blankets from your wicker baskets, and load up with logs to create that real autumnal look.
7. Black Friday
With autumn's arrival comes the excitement that black Friday really isn't too far away, and will be here before you know it. So get saving for all the exciting deals and discounts that will greet you at the end of November - it'll be here before you know it!
